EfficientNow, Inc. released its new LED SureGuard technology to bolster the lifespan and safety rating of its LED bulbs.
The built-in patented semi-conductor technology monitors bulb temperatures and shuts them off when it senses a fire hazard.
According to the company, this is an added safety feature that creates an extra layer of protection around its products, which tend to remain cool to the touch, but like all LED bulbs, are more likely to create a hazard when placed in an enclosure or near a heat source.
“Our LED bulbs are the coolest operating bulbs, making them especially safe for children and pets," said CEO Michael Strohecker. "In March of this year, more than 550,000 bulbs from other manufacturers were recalled due to fire risk, and this made us re-evaluate our products to make sure they were safe. Previously consumers only had price and performance to go by when making their buying decisions. Now they can decide based on safety as well."
The bulbs are now available online and through distributors.
